Oh look, Monday didn’t just magically fox everything, and Tuesday followed suit, who’d have thought? Seriously I feel like a total mess right now. I tried to keep my mood up with a Raspberry Pi project in the evening only to spend 3 hours trying to get any of my SD card readers or cards to work. Needless to say, I failed. So today has been, horrid. Nothing, bad per say if annoying but, I just needed something to go right.

Saying that, something did. I finally decided to sell some of my expensive cards, and instead reinvest into a hobby I’ve had my eye on for years: collecting big box versions of the Lucas Arts adventure games I grew up on, which was pretty much The Secret of Monkey Island onwards. The auction for a lot to get me started ends Thursday, and if I get an SD card working I’m hoping to turn a Pi into a Windows 98 box to boot.

And yet, my mood is awful. It’s not budging and if anything, it’s getting worse. I’ll finish up my writing tasks for today and go crash I think, about all I can do. The whole SD card thing seriously burned me out. It also made me realise just how much stress I’m bottling up. Yikes…
